Class One consists of Year 1 and Year 2 children. They are taught by the EYFS/KS1 teaching team.
Children in Class One still learn mainly through play based activities, which supports Year 1 children with their transition from Reception. This is combined with more formal methods of learning to prepare Year 2 children for Year 3.
We follow the National Curriculum and administer Phonics Testing for Year 1 children in June and SATS tests for Year 2 children in May. We support early literacy skills by rewarding children who read at home regularly as well as giving children individual spellings and words to learn.
In addition to the above children are lucky enough to have regular German and PE lessons. We enjoy learning a different topic every term or half term and try to link most of our History, Art and Design or a mixture of these subjects, dependent on the topic.
Class One decide on their own class rules at the beginning of the school year and try to keep to them with the help of our school Christian Values of; Wisdom, Respect, Friendship and Hope.
Every week a BEL-CHAMP of the Week is chosen for representing our BEL-SKILLS
